Enrollment & Registration

Enrollment for new students

2024-2025 Enrollment Opens in March 2024!

Welcome to Alderwood Elementary!  Please visit Enroll in IUSD to complete Step 1 and Step 2 of the enrollment process.  During this process, you will be asked to scan and upload all required enrollment documents identified in step 2 - PDF format is preferred. Uploading the documents will both ensure their inclusion with your student’s record and facilitate quicker enrollment completion. However, if you are unable to upload any or all of the documents, please send them to Alderwood Elementary - AWEnroll@iusd.org .  We prefer all documents to be sent in 1 email. Once your documents are received, we will verify their completion and contact you if further information is required.  

  • If scanning is not available, parents will need to take clear, legible photographs of documents - PDF format is preferred.

For current IUSD students who need to update their Residency Verification please email documents to: AWEnroll@IUSD.org. You will need to provide a new Residency Affidavit, along with 2 current proofs of residence for the new address - information can be found under Enrollment Documents.

Indicators for School Success - What to Look For 

Alderwood School of Choice

Reflecting the belief that parents should have a choice of schools, the Irvine Unified School District established at its inception an Intradistrict/School Choice Policy. This policy provides the opportunity for parents who reside in the district to enroll their student in any school within the district on a space available basis.

Each school is required to serve the students who live within its attendance area prior to accepting any students from outside its boundary.

(School of Choice Request Window for 2024-2025 will be open until February 23, 2024 at 3:00 p.m.)  

This SCHOOL CHOICE request is for ALDERWOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ONLY.  If you wish to pursue a school choice spot at ANY OTHER Irvine Unified School District school site, please visit IUSD website at http://www.iusd.org for the proper school choice procedure.
